Calorie Counting

I gave up on all my dieting plans and pigged out for a bit thinking I was ok. I'm going to the gym it can't be that bad.. Until I went to the doctor and I gained 20 lbs. Yeah, I couldn't believe it either. I didn't look any different, I didn't feel bigger, but most of all I didn't think 20 lbs! Maybe 5-10. I went home on my Wii, only to have it confirmed that the doc's scale was right. (The medical asst didn't even 0 the scale out before I got on, she just kept it at the last person's weight and said that we were spot on.) Yikes!! not only did I pass my max weight, I passed it by 10 lbs. So I knew I had to settle down and do something about this.

I made a plan, that doesn't include starving myself into oblivion. I downloaded one of those stupid calorie counter apps and now am keeping track of everything I eat. Now that I see how many calories per serving there are, its opening my eyes. I have horrendous eating habits that need to be changed, and I am serious about changing it. Dieting doesn't help because its short term. So if I want to do this the right way, then I have to make a lifestyle change.

I also never understood how much your job affects your eating habits, but boy did I realize it. From the sitting down all day, to the crap I eat when we order lunch as a group, I realized it was all too easy for me to gain those lbs. This is a damn shame for me! The last time I was at my heaviest, I was freakishly huge. This time I am close to the weight I was before, but I'm carrying it differently because I do not look the same as I did before. Still that's not an excuse. I'm just like damn, I still can't believe it!

Don't worry I'm not making this into a weight loss blog, but it's still gonna have updates. I still stand firm on not having pictures in my blog also. It's somewhere in the air about what my main topic is going to be.

On a side note, I also have to watch my alcohol then, there's a whole bunch of calories hidden in those drinks! (Not like I'm an alcoholic or a drunk) I'm just sayin' Maybe I should check out those Skinny Girl drinks. ;-)
